2007: Year of Socks
It's December 31st—time for the self-indulgent year-in-review post. It appears that I managed to finish 30 knitting projects in 2007, 23 of which were socks. Warm feet for everyone!
There is a pair of socks in the above collection I have not shown you before. These are the socks I gave the Professor for Christmas.
Yarn: Socks That Rock lightweight, colorway "Lagoon"
Needles: U.S. size 0 (2.00 mm) DPNs
Modifications: Reduced stitch count to 64.
This was my first time knitting socks with Socks That Rock, and incidentally, it's also the first time I've ever worried about running out of yarn for a pair of socks. 360 yards cuts it pretty close. I had just about a gram of yarn left after knitting this pair for the Professor's size 7 feet. The socks look great, though, and they have the Professor's seal of approval.
Finally, I started on yet another pair of simple socks while we were in Colorado. At this point, it's unclear whether these will be my final FO of 2007, or my first FO of 2008. I think my sock trend will continue into 2008, but I do have some ideas for other projects jostling around inside my head too. Stay tuned.
